I’ve bought almost every cd recommended on your web site. I also took Rick's suggestion and purchased a Rega Apollo cd player. I can’t believe the difference in sound. I really love it.
I checked the Ming Da amp over and all the heater voltages were within range. The caps didn’t appear small or cheap and I checked for heat after driving the amp fairly hard and they seemed ok too. I’m also loving the “tube sound”.
Speaker set up has been interesting with my new Dali Ikon 7’s. They ended up at least 3 feet out from the back wall. I also spent a few dollars on some room acoustic treatments. What a difference again.
I must have the bug as I’m now looking for any little improvement in sound I can achieve. The problem is there aren’t many audiophiles in my area to pick their brains and swap ideas.
Ming Da amps are getting very popular, Paul the 3rd person with Ming Da amps on my website.
Now ain't this cool, it's not everyday do you run into somebody with Custom turntables.
I have a thing for speakers from Demark, they just sound right to my ears.
